P1685 - IEEE Draft Standard for IP-XACT, Standard Structure for Packaging, Integrating, and Reusing IP within Tool Flows

This standard enables the creation and exchange of IP in a highly automated design environment.This standard describes an eXtensible Markup Language (XML) schema for meta-data documenting intellectual property (IP) used in the development, implementation, and verification of electronic systems. This schema provides both a standard method to document IP that is compatible with automated integration techniques and a standard method (generators) for linking tools into a system development framework, enabling a more flexible, optimized development environment. Tools compliant with this standard will be able to interpret, configure, integrate, and manipulate IP blocks that comply with the IP meta-data description. The standard is independent of any specific design processes. It does not cover those behavioral characteristics of the IP that are not relevant to integration.
